This study examined exposures to information about FP and modern Contraceptive use among Women in Nigeria. The study used PMA2020/NGR4 data set. Data analysis included Univariate, Bivariate, and Multivariate techniques. Bivariate analysis findings showed that exposure to FP information via radio, television, newspapers told at health facility, known a place to obtain a method, visited by health worker, attended a community event, received a call or text message, brochure, leaflet or flyers and poster or billboard are significantly associated with modern use of FP in Nigeria (p-value <0.05). Binary logistic regression showed that show that women who heard FP information on radio were 0.23 times as likely as those who did not, to report using contraception. Therefore various ways of conveying family planning messages should be encouraged because multiple sources of information on contraception helps reinforce the message better and extends the reach of family planning campaign.
